Antitrust Task Force

The Antitrust Taskforce advocates for fair competition and empowers communities against market failures to foster economic prosperity.

Mission Statement

We believe the American Dream hinges on healthy, competitive markets accessible to every American.

The FSIC Antitrust/Competition Taskforce’s mission is to spotlight the adverse effects of market failures, unchecked consolidation, and anticompetitive activity, particularly on minorities and vulnerable communities. Industry by industry, the Taskforce educates impacted communities about how high prices, poor access to goods and services, and entrenched economic inequality can be explained by competition problems and how antitrust can be a valuable legal tool to combat market failures and restore the benefits of competition.

Drawing on a network of antitrust experts, community leaders, policymakers, and grassroots organizers, the Taskforce will advocate for sound competition policy and everyone’s right to benefit from the fruits of that policy. It is a venue where those impacted can safely raise their concerns and join the discussion. We work together to support the American Dream and fight for every person’s right to economic prosperity.
